Pardon my crappy graphics skills, but this is what yesterday’s announcement looked like to me. (I’m still going to watch and squee over the movies, but really, Marvel.)
I HATE WHEN Y’ALL ARE RIGHT
no amount of butts can make up for zero POCs in these movies tbh
Fuck off with political correct racial placement. Isn’t it enough that they changed the race of both Nick Fury and Heimdall to please the whining racism card throwing idiots?
Seriously. A BLACK NORSE GOD. I still can’t get over how absolutely ridiculous that is. We didn’t see Africans in Scandinavia before like, 1900s, but our Gods were of course a healthy/representative mix of all races, sexes and sexual observances.
Fuck all that crap. If the comic says “white”, the guy is white. If the comic says “African/indian homosexual”, the guy is an african/indian homosexual. Don’t change the fucking source, and don’t whine about it.
It’s just like when people cried about no black people in Lord of the Rings - it’s just fucking idiotic. RESPECT THE FUCKING SOURCE MATERIAL.
So, I suppose the 1900s was when the Scandinavians finally got over their overwhelming fear of water and started exploring the world beyond their shores?
“Africans IN Scandinavia”. As in, people of other ethnic origins generally moving to, and living in, a Scandinavian country. And no, that didn’t happen until very recently.
Obviously the Vikings saw people of other ethnicities, but it’s extremely far-fetched to assume the Vikings would have a god of African ethnicity, no matter how the hell you twist it.
Ugh, and how about you suck my fictional cock “thunderztorm”? I’ve gotten bored with internet fighting so I don’t usually engage in these types of threads because MY GOD, you’re just too easy a mark, sparky. Especially since I’m into comics and I have a film degree. What’s up.
No one is saying Thor shouldn’t be white.
That’s not the point.
The point is that these films are overwhelmingly white and they are scraping the bottom of the barrel to make films including Ant-Man (who beat his wife) rather than oh, say, one of the prominent or popular PoC superheroes like idk BLACK PANTHER
The point is that a white woman-beating dumb ass “hero” is still worth more than a PoC hero to Hollywood
Shut the fuck up, nerd. You dinks get unreasonably upset whenever someone points a critical lens towards any vestigial nostalgic geekery you cling to.
Amen, Metals! Where is Black Panther?
Aside from Poc, Hollywood is afraid of women. Where is the Captain Marvel/Ms. Marvel/Carol Danvers Film?! Black Widow? Will Ant-Man even include Wasp?
And, while we’re at it, DC… WHERE THE FUCK IS WONDER WOMAN ALREADY? It’s been a decade since Buffy Summers and Xena were on television. Months since The Hunger Games. Where are our women superheroes?
Where are our WoC? Vixen? Hello, Gina Torres.
